GE Readings CD


Gabriel Woolf has supported the George Eliot Fellowship every year since 1969 when he performed a special selection of readings for the 150th anniversary of George Eliot’s birth.

He then did a selection of Eliot reading every year until 2019, usually to help the Fellowship build up some funds for its work. The 2019 selection was a repeat of the 1969 selection, except that the readings are now shared with Rosalind Shanks. Between them they make a formidable presentation and they have done readings all over the world.
